The European Union Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini says she expects the economic sanctions against Iran to be lifted soon.

Iran and world powers led by the US agreed to a landmark nuclear deal to limit Tehran’s enrichment of uranium in exchange for lifting economic sanctions.

Iran has always denied seeking nuclear arms.

Speaking to reporters in Prague on Monday, Mogherini says there was no date set yet but that “the implementation of the agreement is proceeding well.”

Mogherini says that all steps agreed upon have to be “properly done,” including the work of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

But after consulting recently, the foreign ministers of Iran and the United States she believes “things are going well” and the sanctions might be lifted “rather soon.”
